The WPC this week is ‘Treat’.

Two years ago when Sienna came with her dad to visit us in South Africa, it was such a treat for the family to spend time with her,

especially my darling mom who hadn’t seen her since she was a toddler.

We took her to the beach

and out to restaurants where she could have her favourite food, and she even got to design her own pizza.

Making her own hot chocolate with marshmallows was also lots of fun.

A really delicious treat to enjoy

We went to the aquarium in Durban.

Then we all drove up to Johannesburg to see Auntie Mandy,

who took us see the lions at the nature reserve.

She even got to feed a giraffe.

It was a really fun time, chock-full of treats, and a holiday I’m sure she’ll never forget.

Today marks 50 years since hubby and met at a Guy Fawkes night dance. Little did I know when he asked me to dance, that we’d still be ‘Happy Together’ five decades later.

It’s been a real ‘Treat’, and we’re going out today to celebrate, so I may not be around here again until tomorrow.

PS: Can someone please explain to me why my title for this post ended up at the bottom instead of the top, and I can’t change it?

Lookin’ Through Windows for Ed’s Sunday Stills Challenge

A person can see some really interesting things when looking through windows. I try not to peep through house windows as I walk past, but sometimes the temptation is just too much. 🙂 I guess it would be very cheeky to take pics of the inside of someone’s private dwelling, so I haven’t any of those.

Of course, at the aquarium there are lots of windows to protect the viewers from the occupants of those glass cases. Little Sienna can smile, knowing she’s quite safe from the huge shark only metres behind her.

Spectators can happily take photos of the Manta rays, and a host of other fishies. Whatever did man do before the invention of glass? It’s such a useful material. Did you realise that it’s been around since 3,500 BC?

I bet Sienna never thought she’d be able to drive a London bus when she visited South Africa.

Here’s a view from the car window, which is not at all surprising when visiting the Lion Park. IMG_0664

Finally, when taking a pic of the signs for sale at our local hardware store, I got lots of reflections through the window.
